Phoebe Bridgers and Her Band Are a Football Team — Kinda — for Her “Sidelines” Performance on ‘Fallon’

As Phoebe Bridgers has seen her audience expand greatly over the past few years, the Los Angeles singer/songwriter has adapted her visual aesthetic — black-and-white skull/skeleton outfits — accordingly.

What was first a simple T-shirt look exhibited for her Punisher album cycle took on a more upscale feel (as seen during her rescheduled Reunion Tour at the Greek Theatre last October and this past April’s Coachella), and, now, the outfit has adapted once again … this time, as a football uniform!

Bridgers and her band paid a visit to the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night to perform her new song, “Sidelines,” the only new material Bridgers plans to release this year. For this performance, even her band mates leaned into the football look, for maximum effect:

The song, written by Bridgers for the Hulu series Conversations with Friends, also has a music video, directed by Phoebe’s brother and featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the Reunion Tour:
